Larry, what is your painting method ? Just wondering, looks great.
Fred's Rattle can. I start with a good cleaning of the parts to paint using Simple green. A wire wheel for the heavy rust like what can be found on decks and rims. A mouse vibrator sander for the body parts. A nother rince with water, then a final sanding with fine wet/dry sand paper and another rince. Let the parts dry well and watch the weather. The best time to rattle can is when the temp is 75 - 85, actually the hotter the better, and most importantly the humidity needs to be low, 30-40 range. Common problems are running, and bubbleing. A lot of thin coats prevent the first problem, correct weather solves the second. Oh, and I don't primer, mainly to keep the paint cost down.
